This Saturday, we’re hosting a lil greasy thing I’m calling the Shortest Day/Longest Night Get Dowwn Downhill. Over the past several weeks, I’ve been scouting the bum trails, alleyways, foot paths, marginalized spaces and watching the way the rainwater works it’s way down and through these areas.

These two sporting events alone attracted nearly 3,000 people to the alley. Come take a...
